We just wanted to post a few pictures of the Maryland Blizzard of 2010.

At our house we received 24 inches where as other areas like Elkton, Maryland received as much as 30 inches.:eek:

We experienced thunder snow during the night with snow accumulations of about 3 to 5 inches per hour.

The first two pictures are from Saturday 2/6 while the second phase of the storm was going on.

The rest of the pictures are from Sunday 2/7.







Tomorrow we are expecting another storm with accumulation upwards of 20 inches. We are running out of space; maybe, we can send some to New Hampshire.:p

Oh my! Yes, by all means, please send some of that up to NH. We are in desperate need!!

Thank you so much for posting!

That storm was incredible, sharp like a knife cutting its way through. A friend about 1.5 hrs down the parkway got 2 feet, I got absolutely nothing.

We're supposed to get pounded here tomorrow night and Wednesday, not a fun thing for North Jersey....:(

Reminds me of storms we had in the Boston area in 1969 and 1978. No place to put the snow when you shoveled! We need some up here!

Yeah, Maryland and DC are in the bullseye this year for sure.

'96 was bad in in Boston, too. I spent 40 hours one week in January plowing snow in our company parking lot and loading dock area. Had to keep finding new places to push the snow.

These shots remind me of my childhood as I grew up in The Berkshires.

I miss those two to three foot storms.

That was pretty much the scene from November to April.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks all for checking out the post:
There may be a Part II coming out soon.

JOHN, I wish we could oblige. So sorry to hear you are hurting this winter in NH. Do you think FEDEX would ship?

KATHY C: You are probably in a lock down situation as we are here today.
Everything is at a complete standstill. And most Baltimorians don't know how to handle it.:confused:

KEVIN: I agree that it reminds us of years gone by. Wish you had received this 2nd blizzard up your way; I'm tired of shoveling.:D

M SIX, It has been an unprecedented year for us. With today's blizzard we have broken Maryland's alltime winter snowfall amounts.

STETS, I feel like I am 7 years old once again.

ANNE, Please do post some pictures, if you get a chance. I am sure that we will all be shoveling out the next few days.:D

Wow, I can't imagine what you are going through down there. First getting pounded this past weekend and now again. Just stay safe.

I don't think it's been as bad as first thought over here , but right now it is pretty deep. I went in to work at 3:30 am and left at 8:30, just to be safe and get hours in, the roads were pretty empty, I did stop for some nice hot bagels to bring home...:D

So far it looks like the plows are doing a pretty good job. They are predicting that it may go all night and get some heavy bands.

Thanks, Donna! Great pics! Sure could use a storm like that around here:)

Thanks...You should see the snow from yesterday's blizzard.
We'll try to post a few photos later today. Right now we are taking a break after 3 hours of shoveling this morning. Much more to do this afternoon. Maryland broke it's alltime snow record, which was 64 inches. We're 82 inches after yesterday's storm. Unbelievable!:eek: Another smaller storm is do here first of the week. We hope it heads north and dumps a couple of feet on NH.

wow, we have bare ground here in nova scotia. i'm not jealous at all. :)

I can remember one winter when we lived in Green Bay, every Sunday afternoon we shovelled the snow from the banks along the driveway back onto the front yard. That way the snowblower could blow the new snow up and over the banks. I see plenty of room in the pictures to shovel it one more time to move it back further. :cool:

It does look nice though.
